Ah Poh Bak Kut Teh 亚宝砂煲肉骨茶 (Pontian 笨珍)

Got to know this popular Kedai Makan Ah Poh Bak Kut Teh through my friends. Thanks to Dawn for telling me the directions. My family member and I made a trip there to have our lunch. As we arrived slightly late which is near to their closing time, we nearly missed the chance to have the Bak Kut Teh. I'd suggest arriving early to avoid disappointment. A few came after us didn't managed to have the Bak Kut Teh.
How to get there?
Address: No. 1, Jalan Jutawan, Taman Juta, 82000 Pontian, Johor
Tel: +6012 703 1510

From Singapore, drive towards Kukup. Click here for direction.
After the Malaysia Checkpoint, drive straight and Exit 307, keep left and drive towards Pontian
Drive straight and turn right at the T-junction towards Pontian
Turn left after the blue signage "Setia Eco Gardens" and drive straight (shorter route)
(If you miss the left turn, drive straight and will pass by Setia Eco Gardens which is a longer distance)
Follow the signage directions and you'll reach Pekan Nanas and drive straight towards Pontian Kechil
Upon reaching Pontian Kechil, at the cross-junction, turn right towards Batu Pahat
Drive straight
Cross the bridge
First traffic junction after the bridge, make a U-turn
View of the opposite shop before making U-turn
After the U-turn, in a short distance which is also the first left turn.
Make a left turn towards Jln Taib Utama
Left turn at "Wanda" and drive straight towards the end
The shop is located on your left and there are ample parking lots around the area
Opening hours
Daily from 7am to 1pm
One off day per week (Depends on the shop)

We arrived at 12.30pm which was considered a bit late as we weren't aware of the opening hours.
Luckily, they did have Bak Kut Teh for just two of us.
The meat is quite tender, do eat with the dark sauce. The soup entices the taste buds and is simply delish.
They have other dishes such as Assam Fish, Chicken, etc.
If the shop happens to be closed on that day, you could try Wanton Mee (Pontian) or Heng Heng Wanton Mee (Pontian) which are nearby.
